The Planners w/t (8 x 60′) – Observational documentary series that reveals the work of a number of Council Planning Officers from across the UK. Shot over a six-month period, the series follows home owners, property developers and businesses as they navigate the planning process.
Each episode includes a range of different stories highlighting properties and buildings at different stages within the Planning process and will show what it takes to build the most inspirational, complex and beautiful homes and buildings in Britain today.
Viewers are taken into the architects’ offices, the planning meeting, on site and up the scaffolding to show the work at every stage and reveal it requires much more than bricks and mortar. The story is told through the eyes, ears and drawings of the Planners themselves – the people who interpret the rules, evaluate the proposals and make the recommendations.
The Planners has been commissioned by Liam Keelan, Controller, BBC Daytime and Pam Cavannagh, Executive Producer Daytime. It will be executive produced by David Williams and Kieron Collins.
